We strive to provide an affordable world-class concert experience for the community through the presentation of 4-5 high-quality concerts each year.  Our concerts are selected to provide a variety of musical experiences, often including performances by classical, folk, jazz, international, broadway, pop, instrumental or vocal entertainers.   We are a membership organization, and we encourage everyone in the community to join.  By collecting our membership dues before the season begins, we are able to assure the continuance of our long tradition of quality concerts year after year.   We encourage you to support our mission by joining during our spring membership campaign, and contributing additional funds as a friend, patron, donor or sponsor if you are able.
